Springbok prop Vincent Koch has signed an extension to stay with English Premiership champions Saracens until 2022.
Koch, who joined Saracens from the Stormers in 2016, was a mainstay in the starting lineup for large parts of the season, adding a Premiership winner’s medal to go along with his 2016-17 European Champions Cup win.
The 28-year-old had already confirmed that he would not be returning to South Africa despite rumours of him being in Rassie Erasmus’ plans for the 2019 World Cup.
‘I’m really pleased [to have signed an extension],’ Koch said. ‘It’s a very special club and since joining, I’ve made some incredible memories here. It’s an honour to play with guys who are like your brothers every week.’
